When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.
Being inspired by forces, I always wanted to join armed forces. I got selected in Cadet
College but couldn’t go due to family issues. I tried again few years later and appeared in
ISSB but didn’t get recommended. At that stage, I thought of myself as the deprived one and started to question Allah’s will. Few months later, I got selected in NUST for undergraduate program. After my selection in NUST, I achieved many things which I wouldn’t have been capable of achieving if I was in Army.
As it is best said in Quran, Surah Al-Anfal:
“They plan, and Allah plans. Surely, Allah is the Best of planners.”
